Payment Options

Payments made by personal check, business check or online by ACH will be subject to a 3 business day hold to allow for clearance of funds. This hold will not be lifted until 3 business days have passed, regardless of your scheduled registration date. Any holds on your account must be satisfied before registration for the upcoming term will be allowed.

If you have questions regarding an outstanding balance or a financial hold on your account, please contact the Student Accounts Office at (630) 829-6503.

Tuition and fees are incurred at the time of registration. For ALL programs payment of tuition, fees and housing charges is due seven (7) calendar days after the first day of class unless the balance is covered by financial aid or set up on a payment plan through TuitionPay (see below).

Tuition is due by the tuition due date whether or not a bill has been received. If a student has not received a bill, they may contact Student Accounts to determine the required amount due or they may view their account online at http://www.ben.edu/MyBenU.

If the student's enrollment changes after the initial set up of this plan, the student will be responsible for adjusting the payment plan either online or with a TuitionPay consultant at (800) 635-0120. For any new payment plan or increase to a payment plan, the student is required to sign an online disclosure agreeing to the terms of the payment plan. Payment should be made directly to TuitionPay on or before the due date.Please note that tuition is due in full according to the deferred due date specified by TuitionPay regardless of when individual employers reimburse their employees.

Benedictine will send an invoice to the third party after the add/drop period. Payment is due upon receipt of the invoice and is not contingent upon the student successfully completing the course. All authorized and non authorized charges not paid for by the third party will be the responsibility of the student.
